I am currently waiting for a response from the email team on confirming I have had two emails letting me know they are still looking into it. Seems like it should be a very simple check as I even sent them the link to the borderlands website page which states amazon.co.uk is getting the preorder bonuses. Hope they confirm soon as I would rather not go elsewhere :/
I had an email back giving me the sorry you are confused here is a list of current pro order bonuses we have (which it wasn't on) these are all our offers we can't confirm any new offers so that's that for me now looking elsewhere
Is this bonus going to be worth it though? The guns will soon be surpassed by bigger better ones you find or buy and if like the first Borderlands, they make add-on packs you'll end up spending more for add-ons too. I am tempted to buy this game but will it go cheap second-hand quickly or shall I wait for the updated version with all the add-on packs and save money too like I did for the first?
I guess if you want to get it on the day of release you may as well pre-order and get this bonus but if your cash is tight I say forget paying full price and wait 6-12 months and then pay 25%-50% less for it and then you'll have saved enough to buy the add-ons when they are released which will undoubtedly be better than the pre-order bonus.
The bonus is going be free for pre-order so technically you aren't paying anymore for it, and personally, waiting until September is going to feel like forever, I don't think I can wait any longer for the game! Also the developers have acknowledged that the storyline in Borderlands 1 wasn't as good as in the additional DLC, so they have put in a lot of work to enhance the main game storyline. That isn't to say DLC won't be better, but perhaps the difference won't be so great.
Anyone know who'll be doing the preorders for the newly announced 5th Class "Mechromancer"? Think I'll hold off playing that until I can play as that class, which'll be released for general download 60-90 days after the game's release. It's still very tempting to hold off for the inevitable "complete edition"
That is gr8 otherwise i would of gone to shopto.net ( they have it there) glad they got it on amazon :D they got a screenshot of it on the screenshots of the game so now i do expect it with the game :D
the mechro mancer is apparantly going to be free for premium club members so if you want it free get the pre order bonus now so i read on the facebook post about it and yes it will be 60 to 90 days after release as they will start to work on the new character after the game is gone gold.
Well, since they updated with the new box art they also removed the Premiere Club screenshot but didn't add any sort of confirmation that they will in fact have the pre-order bonus. It also still isn't listed on the pre-order bonus page. I'll give them another month and if they don't post anything official by then I guess I'll be cancelling my order and gong with play.com. This isn't something I want to miss.
